Flirty texting—maybe it’s something that comes naturally to you, or maybe you find yourself at a loss when you want to translate come-hither feelings into a just a few characters. Luckily, emoji give us an easy way to communicate visually. There are always the good ol’ standbys (Image, anyone?) but here are some more options if you want to switch things up.
Send flowers. Maybe a dozen roses via text don’t quite measure up to the real-life version of the gesture, but they can be a cute way to let someone know you’re thinking about them. (Just please don’t use this on Valentine’s Day as your only attempt at romance. Not. Enough.)
- Sloooooowwww things down. If you want to focus on foreplay, and we are fans of that always, this combo conveys your desire to move at a tortoise’s pace.
- Let’s talk about sex things. The classic sex euphemism, emoji-style. Great sex and clear communication go together like PB&J, so use this combo if you want to coyly start a convo.
- You’re smoking (hot). When your boo-thang is looking extra spiffy, let them know they’re on fire. (You can also just send them this song.)
- All of the vibes. String these emoji together or pepper them throughout the conversation to set the tone for an electrifying night on the town (or an electrifying night in, if you know what we mean).
And because all the emoji flirting might lead to something, make sure you’ve got your birth control covered.
